Learn More about Guy Lafleur:

Guy Lafleur was drafted first overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1971.  Lafleur had a slow start when he joined the NHL but had found his groove by 1974, becoming the first player in the NHL to score 50 goals and 100 points in 6 straight seasons.  He helped the Canadiens win 5 Stanley Cups in 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979.

Lafleur is the all-time leading goal scorer for the Canadiens with 518 goals and 728 assists in 14 years.  He holds the franchise record for 136 points in a season in 1976-77.  Guy Lafleur was a fan favorite, nicknamed “the Flower” by English speakers and “Le Demon Blond” (the Blond Demon) by French speakers.

Following the 1979 season, several key players retired and the Canadiens’ winning streak came to an end.  Injuries both on and off the ice, shortened Lafleur’s season and his production dropped significantly.  During the 1984-85 season, Lafleur was unhappy with the ice time he received and asked to be traded.  GM Serge Savard refused his request and Lafleur decided to retire.  Lafleur was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988.

Guy Lafleur briefly returned to the NHL after his induction to the Hall of Fame, one of only three players to do so—Gordie Howe before him and Mario Lemieux after.  He played for the New York Rangers for the 1988-89 season and was traded to the Quebec Nordiques for the next two seasons, wishing to end his playing career in Quebec.
